BENTON - Some Scott County residents will soon be receiving a letter asking for personal information.
"We're updating our voter registration records," said Rita Milam, county clerk for Scott County. "Some letters will be coming from my office requesting Social Security numbers and/or birthdates."
Milam said this information formerly was not required but now is to meet state and federal requirements. "I just want to let them know it's legitimate," she said.
While voter registration records are public record, Social Security and birthday data is confidential, according to Milam. "We don't give those numbers to anyone," she said.
